Please use extra caution when driving!
The days are getting shorter and cooler and now we are fast approaching my favorite season, Autumn. I trust everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable summer. The town hosted some great events this past summer and a few more are scheduled for this fall.
Kenilworth's annual Street Fair will take place on Sunday, October 26, 2014 from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm. It will take place at its usual location on the Boulevard.
I look forward to seeing you at the events. I would like to finish by wishing all the school kids a successful school year and I hope all the parents enjoy the house being a little quieter for a few hours during the day.
